Strategy of Mind

Strategy of Mind:
A collaborative partnership of Leading Minds Executive Coaching

Our training programs optimize executive leadership and employee performance by enhancing critical reasoning, emotional intelligence, and mindfulness skills.

Strategy of Mind helps executive leaders and their organizations to achieve stability, strategic focus, collaboration, and growth. Our training and coaching programs leverage ideas from science and the humanities to enhance stress management, productivity, and joy in the workplace.

We provide executives and professionals with specialized leadership training focused on enhancing emotional intelligence and interpersonal effectiveness. Strategy of Mind training is rooted in an innovative and evidence-based approach to leadership development —reading and discussing great humanities texts. The texts used by Strategy of Mind faculty include great works of philosophy, literature, and poetry from both the Western and Eastern traditions. Recent research shows that this approach enhances people’s capacity to empathize with others and to reach their goals in social interactions.
